The machine press, also known as the chest press machine, is a popular strength training exercise that targets the chest, shoulders, and triceps. It is performed on a weight machine with a horizontal or angled seat and adjustable handles. The machine press is an excellent exercise for beginners as it provides stability and control while lifting weights. It also allows for a full range of motion that can be adjusted to suit different fitness levels and body sizes. To perform the machine press, sit on the machine with your back flat against the pad and your feet flat on the ground. Grasp the handles with your palms facing forward and your elbows bent at a 90-degree angle. Push the handles forward until your arms are almost fully extended, then slowly lower them back down to the starting position. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions. It is important to keep your back flat against the pad throughout the exercise to avoid injury.
